Probiotic for Children’s Diarrhea
According to WHO, around 4 billion cases of diarrhea occur every year among children. WHO recommends probiotic therapy in children’s diarrhea. Probiotic strains restore the balance of protective intestinal microflora and thus help control diarrhea. Clinical studies proved that a combination of two well-documented probiotics strains of Lactobacillus paracasei subspecies paracasei CRL 431 and Lactobacillus acidophilus LA5 colonize in the intestine and prevent colonization of opportunistic and pathogenic microorganisms. This, thus, helps controlling children’s diarrhea of varying etiologies. MontumTM contains Lactobacillus paracasei ssp paracasei and Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotics strains that colonize in the intestine and fight against harmful microbes. MontumTM reduces the incidence of diarrhea and also the risk of antibiotic side effects, including diarrhea. It also provides faster recolinization of healthy flora of the intestine after antibiotic treatment. MontumTM is a dietary supplement containing potentially beneficial bacteria. In order to provide health benefits MontumTM has been developed in accordance with the WHO guidelines.
MontumTM prevents colonization of opportunistic and pathogenic microorganisms and fights against them by producing antimicrobial substances: lactic acid, bacteriocins and H2O2.
